Missouri GOP Treasurer to Make Bid For State Auditor

Missouri's Republican Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick is running for state auditor. Fitzpatrick announced his candidacy Thursday.

Current Auditor Nicole Galloway has said she won't run for another term in 2022.

The state auditor checks for government waste, fraud and abuse. The office conducts regular audits of many state and local agencies.

Galloway is the only Democrat currently serving in statewide office. Fitzpatrick's candidacy represents a chance for Republicans to hold every statewide office in Missouri.
